Teen Colin Ford comes up with an enterprising idea to make money - murder

Teen Colin Ford comes up with an enterprising idea to make money - murder.

Where another high-school student might earn cash working at the local yoghurt hut, Ford’s 17-year-old Reagan lends his services to classmates looking to get rid of their parents.

When a series of mums and dads meet their ends in innocent-seeming accidents, only dogged local cop Cliff (Timothy Simons) smells a rat. However, he is unable to persuade anybody that Reagan is anything other than the squeaky-clean, straight-A student he appears.

This cunningly plotted dark comedy thriller is gleefully subversive fun, although some viewers may feel uneasy by the guilty pleasure of rooting for its smug, psychopathic young hero to get away with murder.
